Biographical Information[edit]

Enos Kirkpatrick was the first major leaguer with the first name Enos; the other two through 2011 have been Enos Slaughter and Enos Cabell. Kirkpatrick played two seasons in the National League and two in the Federal League. He was able to fill a spot at third (97 games in the majors), shortstop (29), second (27) and first base (14), with a few (3) in the outfield.

Enos, who was born and died in Pittsburgh, PA, is one of two major leaguers with the last name Kirkpatrick, with the other one being Ed Kirkpatrick.

The rejuvenation of Enos Kirkpatrick is a source of much joy among the elite here. . . He has been getting his two or more hits per game and playing third base as though to the manor born, while his base-running has been far beyond expectations." - Sporting Life, March 15, 1913, reporting on Kirkpatrick's performance in spring training, which likely kept him in the majors after he hit under .200 the previous season
